Honda did it again! The 2017 Pilot, CR-V, Odyssey, and HR-V have been named the “2017 Best Cars for Families” by U.S. News & World Report. The award was based on what each vehicle can offer families with space, safety, practicality, comfort and convenience. Out of 211 new cars, SUVs and minivans equaling up to 18 different classes of vehicles, Honda came out with four that ranked the best in each category.
Best 3-Row SUV for Families: 2017 Honda Pilot
After the Pilot’s new redesign on its 2016 model year, it has earned many accolades and recognized over and over as a great family vehicle. It has three rows that can seat up to eight people, comfortably. What truly defined the Pilot as family friendly was the car seat capabilities. Made to accommodate three car seats in the second row with the seats staggered, and third row LATCH anchors, the Pilot is made to accommodate every member of the family.
Best Compact SUV for Families: 2017 Honda CR-V
Also newly redesigned, the CR-V still continues to provide families with the utility, space, and safety they need. In its class, the CR-V offers the most passenger and cargo space, reliability with ratings to prove it and advanced safety equipment and features that families love. Still a utility vehicle, the CR-V has the comfort and flexibility to get you where you want to go.
Best Minivan for Families: 2017 Honda Odyssey
Always a family favorite, the Odyssey has been awarded the title of the best minivan for families seven years in a row by U.S. News. Built with family-friendly features, it’s roomy, accommodating, and you can even get one with a vacuum! We can’t wait to see what the redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey has in line for family friendliness.
Best Subcompact SUV for Families: 2017 Honda HR-V
The HR-V is the best subcompact SUV for families. It may not look like a family car, but don’t let the size of it fool you. It has the best cargo and passenger space in its class. Families love it because it’s practical, reliable, efficient and you have plenty of room for child seats with its upper and lower anchor access.
